Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

Why cant I send video on Skype using the Acer Crystal Eye built in web cam? It use to work now it doesn't. I can receive video fine and hear the other party. They can see me. There is a message when you click the video camera icon that I am not sending video. Skype does recognize my built in cam. This is a netbook.


Answers :

Does the driver software need updating? Open the start button and type "Dev". Under Control Panel open up Device Manager. Open Imaging Devices. Open Video Webcam. Open Driver tab, click Update Driver. Download and run any new driver updates.I hope this helps.
Check with Acer or your carrier. Skype has also changed things around due to updates.
